"Empi's" are back in production and selling for $75 ea., with caps. 15x5.5", 4" back spacing, 4 on 5.118" bc,(130 mm). Plan is to put new bc. in adjacent, blank areas.This will get you up to a 205-50-15 hipo tire. Good Luck,roverman.

Anyone doing an IRS should check out the cv axle link at the site Jim posted.

I can't find anything nice to say about Empi styling, except maybe that they'd look just right on a hot pink Karmann Ghia...

So instead I'll just ask: "Why 5.5" wide?" Wouldn't a wider wheel suit your performance tire much better?
